I don't know what happened here, but it's kinda funny.

Obviously Obama knows how to pronounce janitor, Jupiter & Jew. Ja and Ju is a pretty big second letter in vowel fail tho. Where am I going with this? No idea, I'm gonna stop but I do have a question:

Does the POTUS actually have any input into what is written, is he allowed to potentially revise the script?
I'd think if he read the script at least once and was as lucid, involved enough in it as the president ought to be whilst in the midst of public speaking...he wouldn't have almost disclosed top secret info...subconsciously alluding to the under-paid Jupiterians that slave day and night mopping floors & changing rolls of toilet paper for the New Inheritors and their "oxygenated biodomes".


Seriously though, it very well could have been a flub...a brain fart. In any case I kinda get the feeling he might not have at least looked at the write-up before hand. C'mon Obama, should've at at least took a gander while chillin' in the make-up chair!
I just think such a leader should be conscious of the context of what he is uttering. He should have known he was going to refer to a janitor in his train of thought instead of droning on the screen thinking he read Jupiter or whatever. Anyways, I'm not saying he didn't know what was in the script...I'm just saying as the POTUS he should have, if he didn't. If it was supposed to be intentional and offensive then it was ill constructed. Surely he could have come up with a comparison that made more logical or humorous sense. Maybe comparing the two and their wages could be construed as stereotypically ironic...but in a far-fetched way that would eliminate its effectiveness, save for the fact that some people regard it as being "racist" simply at the drop of a phonetic "jo͞o". If it was Freudian then you still wouldn't have much of a case on what he really meant by it. Whatevs, I'm glad the OP was made.

I think Obama is making a connection to our poor economy and Jews or taxes and Jews. Is he trying to tell us something?

Oh Borther. How many people commenting on this thread even took the time to listen to the actual audio at the link?

While funny, it doesnt ACTUALLY sound like he said "Jew".

He starts to say something very close to a word like Junior, but then catches himself and says 'janitor'. Hardly the solid proof of Obama's antisemitism you are shrieking about.

Watch the video instead of reading the OP's transcription.

Seriously, it's imaginary crap like this that makes rational people's complaints with Obama seem crazy by association.

Way to not address NY's 26th district as I mentioned. Your arrogance and assumptions do your extremely week thread a great disservice. You pick and choose the speicific point you can maybe get one up on and ignore everything else. If you actually read or watch any news then I feel sorry for the fact that your apparent selective listening skills seem to have put you in a bad place.

Obama said Joo....
He is antisemetic.
Obama banned inhalers a year before he was president
He is antiasmatic!

Looking forward to the next big fall on your face.

Yes, I do know you better than you if you are going to try and pretend your thanking me was sarcasm. Anyone that can read can see you thought I was sincere and your thanks was real. Get over yourself and see if you can find something useful to share with us.

Time to go back to the Billy Meier threads where at least the BS is interesting.

Well then maybe stop calling him the "Messiah" or "the smartest President ever"!!...since it seems that it is his fierce detractors that are the only ones that use those adjectives.


I am a little confused about that too. I have never heard anyone but the right refer to him in those terms. Then again, the right is not sure what they are mad at. They complained that Kerry, Gore, and Obama were "too smart" and that was their flaw. Now when they can find a crack in the front they built, they jump on that too.

I . the clip and it sounded like "joov" to me.

It would be cool if we got to meet a real life Jewish janitor.

I didn't hear about this until I was driving to the grocery and heard it on talk radio....the radio guy was querying whether it was a freudian slip...

I just finished watching pom.

Okay, now be honest. Did you read that sentence wrong? You sure? Read it again...

According to the logic of this thread, everyone who read that wrong, is a sex crazed pervert.

It's funny how the brain works. You can mean to say one thing, but another comes out, or you can be reading something and the brain interprets it wrong....


I wish to sum up my thoughts on this thread with the following.



Oh and before I get accused of being an Obama supporter, I most certainly am not. So don't even go there.

Good day.

Ever heard of a aphasia?

It's when someone thinks of a word, but says something entirely un related. Aphasia is a term reffering to a more consistent symptom, however the process that it occurs is much the same.

As much as I can't stand Obama, you've got to be kidding me. You're the reason why most of us get looked at like idiots.. You take this little slip, and magnify it by 10 and expect us to be all over his ass for it.

Sure I've heard of the word "aphasia".

But I know of it under its true definition:


Aphasia: A loss or reduction of language following brain damage typically as a result of a stroke. This includes talking, understanding, reading, and/or writing.


source

You absolutely sure you want to keep using the term aphasia to describe obama? However, maybe you are on to something after all.

There was this thread

Confused would seem to be a correct definition ...

If you consider Louis Farrakhan - which was clearly mentioned in my post as claiming obama is the "messiah" - as "someone on the right".

And please give us some reputable sources for conservatives claiming that Kerry, Gore, and Obama were "too smart".

I didn't know people got a different tax rate based on their religion.

I guess it works differently here in Cannuckistan. It's a Bush like Gaffe in the full sense of the word as he obviously went off script, and what he managed to get out doesn't exactly make any sense.

Unless he was insinuating that "Jews" pay higher taxes than most, I don't really get the point or how this is damaging at all.



How don't you see that.....look who owns everything and who still profit while still owning everything..

Almost everything ...sorry.

It looks he made no mistakes in this speech !

wonders never cease......guilty conscience or not !



WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama praised the "unshakeable" bonds between Israel and the United States Tuesday in remarks marking the start of the Jewish high holy days.

Obama paid homage to US-Israeli ties in a videotaped statement honoring the sacred Jewish holidays -- book-ended by the start of the Jewish new year Rosh Hashanah on Wednesday and the day of atonement, Yom Kippur, next week.

The major Jewish holidays afford "an opportunity to reaffirm our friendships, renew our commitments, and reflect on the values we cherish," said Obama.

Oh come on, he meant Jewish-Janitors ... The ones that will have to move in and clean up the financial mess he's helped create.... Without a "socialist mop".... Oh and those Jewish-Janitors can afford to pay more taxes, they wont complain.

I know! How does a guy begin to say the wrong word, like "Junior" or Juvenile" and then, instead, correct their self and say 'janitor'!?! I mean, PEOPLE never mis-speak. The ONLY rational conclusion is Obama is a Communist Muslim.

Clearly this is proof Obama is unfit to be POTUS.
